The writing is very clear and almost cinematic in feeling. The author brings alive the sights and smells of the 1300's. It makes for a compelling adventure and I was eager to turn the pages to see what was going to happen next.
Dealing with time travel can be very tricky, but the author handles the back and forth of the overlapping time-lines very well with out getting the reader lost.
There is a wealth of arcane masonic and Templar lore to be had and the medieval sites and cathedrals mentioned in the book are mostly still around to be seen. This book adds a dimension to our enjoyment and appreciation of those monuments.
Not only does Ian hear a humming noise as the guide speaks, he thinks he is hearing his agent and another man talking in the crypts area. He then begins to hear music that no one else seems to hear. As the music swells, he hears the words " truth conquers all" in his head. Fade to black as Ian falls into nothingness.
When Ian awakens, he is but he isn't Ian. If this seems like an enigma, it is. He is Ian in body but not Ian of the 21st century. It seems he has been transported back to the year 1307 as an initiate of the Knights Templar making his way on a pilgrimage. The final destination is a location not to be built for another century or more. He has memory of his other self in the 21st century but also can function in the 14th , just as if he had lived there for years. Because Ian has the sole ability to hear the "healing music" he is a target for those who have it in for the Knights Templar. Ian knows that in approximately 6 weeks the King will give an order to rout out all the Knights Templar and arrest them. In order to save the music for the world, Ian must finish his pilgrimage and return to his own time. Will he be able to finish this dangerous but very important mission? Will it be in time ?
What an absolutely incredible imagination Mr. Hunt has!Read more ›
I would recommend the book to those who like mystery & intrigue. It intertwines discovery of oneself with a mission, breaking the mold of what is normal & know.
It was very entertaining to read the different sayings and words for things in Scotland (present day idioms) and the seemingly well-researched words and cultural habits in past Europe.
Writing an understandable time-travel novel is very difficult, and although the author makes a valiant attempt, I was simply confused throughout the book. Reconciling the past character with the future character came up lacking. Jumping around with what are dreams/reality/memories/future/present events was frustrating to follow at times. And then all of a sudden, the main character is "back to the future".
I was left feeling like I was missing something. Perhaps the author will write another book about how all those ancient treasures got lost and/or how Rosslyn Chapel came to have the song, tying events together.
I'll read it again in the future some'time', maybe then the story will make better sense.
I recommend this book to all Masons and profane alike. It is just one heck of a fun ride and it opens and enlightens the mind.

I have well over 20 books concerning the Knights Templar. Some are purely historical accounts, others are novels. A Song in Stone satisfies on both counts. Mr. Read morePublished on March 6, 2014 by Geist
Very unusual book. It had tremendous historical detail and went on and on and on. It wasn't boring exactly, because it had some interesting parts. Read morePublished on November 26, 2013 by Sam
It was an interesting story, a little odd in the development of the plot, a little short in tying all the threads together. It was okay.Published on November 14, 2013 by Amazon Customer
This was an interesting weave of the same person living in interesting times to influence his future lives. It was a very interesting read.Published on November 12, 2013 by Samuel L. Worley Jr.
Weak . I was expecting a Templar adventure and this was just a silly attempt at finding that formula. Started with SOME promise and went down hill from there. Read morePublished on October 31, 2013 by Deacon Pete
